In that case correctness in this context is evidently rather

Ultimately, the tools are there to serve their masters, and the iCal
format is simply a medium for communicating user data between
end-points in a standard interoperable fashion.  It is up to the users
to determine what data actually needs to be communicated via the
format.  In my case, if I should explicitly request the tool to hide
the repetition of events in order to avoid cluttering my display, I
see nothing incorrect about the tool doing just that.  Likewise, as
another hypothetical example, if all my events had LOCATION
properties, it would be equally valid and correct to export them to
one iCal file for use with korganizer on a full desktop display, and
to another iCal file with the LOCATION properties trimmed out to save
space on a mobile phone display.

No I do not.

In any case, I will use the hook which Carsten kindly provided.
